I was sure that I already had the latest version of Java installed, but to verify I went here: https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

And sure enough I have the latest JRE. enter image description here

Then I went and followed the directions here to find the JRE via my command line: https://www.java.com/en/download/help/version_manual.xml#cmdline which says to enter:

$ /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version

and the terminal output was:

java version "1.8.0_25" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_25-b17) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.25-b02, mixed mode)`

Can anyone help me identify what I'm doing wrong here? I definitely have Java.

  • the command to find JRE in termianl is just "java version" – tron_jones Jan 10 '15 at 21:45
  • It is java -version you need a space and a - – mmmmmm Jan 10 '15 at 23:08
  • right. $java -version... the output was: No Java runtime present, requesting install. – BigRon Jan 10 '15 at 23:11
  • Would the problem simply be that I don't have the Java Developer Kit? – BigRon Jan 11 '15 at 0:50

I installed the Java Developer Kit and that fixed the problem. I'm not sure why that was needed.
